Committee Member, Women in Engineering Group
Engineers have a critical role to play, and an ethical obligation, in the transition to a more sustainable society.
Climate breakdown and biodiversity collapse are the most serious issues of our time. Transformational action is required in all engineering sectors and disciplines to help tackle them.
Shaping the world around us
Engineers Ireland champions the principles and practices of sustainable development and enables our engineering community to make a sustainable impact on society.
As part of this organisational goal, our Women in Engineering Group strives to highlight the important work engineers are doing in helping to change the future and to inspire the next generation of engineering talent.
It is our hope that we educate and empower readers to aspire to become engineers of the future.
Educating and empowering future talent
Through our new ‘Engineers Changing the Future’ online interview series, we aim to highlight the critical role Ireland’s talented engineers play in combatting the climate crisis globally and inspire readers to be drivers of climate action.
From senior carbon and climate specialists to transportation engineers, renewable energy co-founders and conservation specialists, we have engaged with Ireland’s top engineering talent to share their stories and to provide tips and advice to motivate and encourage Ireland’s future talent pipeline.
Each week, a new sustainability champion is revealed to provide those with a passion for sustainability with the opportunity to explore the role of engineers in developing more sustainable cities and communities.
Building a sustainable future
By profiling these inspiring and talented engineering role models, it is our hope that we educate and empower readers to aspire to become engineers of the future and continue to push the boundaries of innovation to protect and enhance our environment for many years to come.
